What is the BEST? Envy or Restricted Nvidia Drives?

Postby maduranga on Sun Aug 05, 2007 11:52 am

Hello... :)
I just want to install Nvidia drivers to get the Compiz Fusion installed and running on my pc. But still don't know what method to use to get the Nvidia driver installed. What I want is GOOD PERFORMANCE and QUALITY.. so what do you suggest to use? what method you are using to install Nvidia and ATI drivers :?:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Use Envy to install drivers. Select Cassandra --> System Tools --> Envy. That launches the GUI to install / remove drivers.

I believe that issue was fixed. Look at Alberto's blog and post the question there. I've had no problems in any case, since Envy is included in Linux Mint, it is as simple as running envy again. :wink:
